While the general aesthetic of the hotel remains lovely- well designed and beautifully decorated, the lack of proper maintenance and investment is starting to show and makes this hotel rather poor value for money.
My bedroom window had a big crack across it that was covered in scotch tape and during the first 2 days of my week-long stay, I had no hot water in the bathroom... The AC also didn't function very well, which might explain the abundance of mosquitoes. Housekeeping services were erratic, as was the quality of front desk competence. That being said, all hotel personnel were gracious and polite, which made up for the wear&tear apparent all around us. F&B was also quite good- excellent breakfasts.
The seaside gardens, pool, and bar are so pleasant that I'd still be tempted to return- if not at least just for a sunset cocktail! But the spa was comically lousy- completely disorganized and in a terrible state of ill repair...Best avoided all together!
The hotel just needs a little reminder of what 5*standards are, as for now, it truly doesn't make the cut.
